(Due to file size issues, the WIP has been posted on dA.)
I haven't drawn in over a year but I've recently been getting back into it and was wondering what you guys think of this so far. Right now, I'm considering fixing the hands because they feel too static for me, specifically his right hand. Also, may need some help getting those arms and legs right. The torso might also need work, but I can't tell. I need fresh eyes.
I apologize if it feels so static. I've love to be able to do gestures and stuff, but I am too slow and methodical, not to mention I am a bit of a perfectionist. Plus, I don't have the time to go through Riven Phoenix's How to Draw the Human Figure from your Mind series due to volunteer work, school, and looking for a paying job, though I have the time to go over Andrew Loomis' books and stuff, which I have found excellent so far.
All criticism is welcome. I appreciate constructive criticism, but if you must be harsh, so be it. I want to get back into art as I love creating characters and worlds as I want to be a writer. I also want this to be my first entry into a sketchbook so I can track my growth and improve.
The character's name is Serph Morris in a story I am writing called When The Wheel of Fate Is In God's Hands.
PS: A close friend of mine brought up a good point. The line variation is inconsistent. Will do my best to fix it once I correct the anatomy issues. Also, my roommate commented his pectorals looked like boobs and the waist is too thin. Looking for a way to correct this but I was wondering if you agree or not. Also, the legs look incredibly ugly to me, but I don't have my anatomy books on hand.
